Guan Eng hires BH ex-reporter as aide. I posted once about bumping into a corporate leader who was flying Economy, so I understand blogger (Ning Baizura's) Mr Manager when he realised that it was the Penang CM seated in Y Class in front of him. I hope next time the airline upgrades Lim Guan Eng to Business; he can do quite a bit of paper work in that half an hour or 45 minutes. The people won't fault a CM if he flies in comfort, would we?
See Ning and Guan Eng's pics at Mr Manager's blog h e r e.
By the way, I hear Guan Eng will be hiring the services of one Wan Hamidi Hamid who recently tendered his resignation as journalist with the New Straits Times. Hamidi started his career with Berita Harian in 1988 before he moved to The Star, a Singapore newspaper, and a High Commission as its press attache.
He was brought in to NST by Kalimullah Masheerul Hassan to boost the Umno-owned paper's political coverage. Wan Hamidi, I was told, is a life member of the DAP.
